November 12/Brenham, Texas -- Coming to ice cream cases from Blue Bell is Gingerbread House Ice Cream, a creamy cinnamon ice cream with flavorful gingerbread pieces, festive red and green sprinkles and miniature marshmallows all surrounded by a vanilla icing swirl.
“Building a gingerbread house and placing it as a holiday centerpiece is a yearly activity for many,” said Carl Breed, Blue Bell director of marketing. “And our ice cream has become a traditional dessert served in the homes of Blue Bell Ice Cream fans. That’s why Gingerbread House Ice Cream is a perfect addition to this line. The flavor is festive and definitely the best tasting gingerbread house I’ve ever eaten.”
Alongside Gingerbread House, this year Blue Bell is offering these holiday favorites, Christmas Cookies Ice Cream, Peppermint Ice Cream and Spiced Pumpkin Pecan Ice Cream.
Christmas Cookies, a combination of favorite holiday cookies -- chocolate chip, snickerdoodle and sugar -- in a tasty sugar cookie ice cream with red candy cane-shaped sprinkles and a green icing swirl throughout, was re-released earlier this year for a special in July promotion due to its overwhelming popularity last year.
Spiced Pumpkin Pecan is a spiced pumpkin ice cream combined with sugar-coated pecans and a rich cinnamon-honey-praline sauce. This flavor made its debut in 2010.
Peppermint, a long-time favorite ice cream flavor during the holiday season, is a cool, refreshing peppermint ice cream sprinkled with peppermint candy pieces.
“We tried something new last year when we introduced our Holiday Favorites line of ice cream,” Breed added. “Traditionally, less ice cream is sold during the winter months, but our Holiday Favorites were an instant hit.”
